    The UP has been reported to have reopened the Mosher branch of the old M&I from Ste Genevieve to Bismarck MO due to high water this week.

    Was a section of the old Missouri and Illinois Line, merged into MoPAC in the early 70s as used their trackage predominantly anyway. The line leaves Ste Gen west thru to Weingarten where it parallels MO 32 Hwy, shortly after cuts cross country to Park Hills then on into Bismarck. Is somewhat kept up just for instances as this where high water shuts down the N/S main along the MS River.
